Today’s loot:

3 new stamps that I’ve always look at but I’ve never bought this brand before as they are pretty costly. So I got 60% off 2 stamp sets & 30% of one.
Paper, buttons, ink & glitter spray was at a 50% off (spend more than $60)! So it was pretty worry it.

Scissors

20120305-000243.jpg

Just a quick tip! These are the scissors I use when I’m making the cards. Yup, I had to invest in them, so that I could cut fine details.

The cutterbee (pink) is smaller which allows me to cut finer details but the handle can be tiring at times…

While the other scissor (red) has larger handle and it’s very precise too!

These are my 2 handy scissors which I’ll recommend for paper cutting details.

New stuff!

I’ve been shopping! A few stuff I’ve got in bundle are below.

What I’m most thrilled to use are the copie markers!! Finally, my own copie markers. Previously, my friend, who used to take designing, has been lending hers to me, which is really sweet! But every time I use it, i really try not to use so much as they aren’t mine. So I finally got my own set!

I’ve got some new paper, keys, ribbons, stickers, a cutter, markers & stamps …

Vintage says it all.

20120229-000355.jpg

How to make your paper looks vintage? Well, use some distress ink to ink up the sides!

Tools:
1. Edge cutter
2. Distress ink (I’m using vintage photo)
3. Dense sponge

Steps:
1. Run the cutter back & fro on each sides of the paper.
2. Dap your dense sponge onto the distress ink.
3. Run the sponge on the edge of the paper.
4. After running the sponge along the slides of the paper, gently rub the sponge in circular motion on the paper for a staining effect.

My say:
Its my first time vintaging paper but I’ve got to say, the distress (vintage photo) might have been too dark on my paper. I’ll be picking up distress (old paper) when I have the time, I believe it’s lighter, so the stains won’t be that harsh.

Vintaging the sides, add texture to your cards, so I’m pretty happy with the results. Will post an image of the complete card soon (:
